Hello everyone! Here is my second card for our Christmas in July challenge. Our wonderful sponsor is Frantic Stamper! If you haven't checked them out yet, please do. They have some many wonderful products on the website!

I happened to go to a retreat where someone had one of these stamps and fell in love with them. My project today shows you that you can take any image and using traditional Christmas colours and papers you can convert it to be appropriate for a Christmas card. Here is my project:
Our wonderful sponsor has TONS of stamps, dies and embossing folders and I used 2 stamp and die sets from Hero Arts that are available at the site.
I stamped the Poinsettia (Hero Arts Antique Poinsettia ) onto some kraft card and coloured with my Prismacolor Pencils. I trimmed it and layered onto the red card base. I die cut 2 Peace sentiments.... from the Hero Arts Peace stamp and cut and layer then over each other, slightly off set and then finished off with the rest of the sentiment in the corner.
We would love to see your Christmas cards so come join us (HERE) Don't forget to use your Die Cutting Machine to die cut or emboss on your project.

Christmas in July
I'm ready to make cards and tags, OH MY.
I decided to play with one of my favorite tag dies for the holiday seasons. As you can see I made quite a few. You can take just about any piece of scrap paper and us it as a tag. You can see I was not choosy in my paper choices. But I am happy with all my tags.
I did make some of the cards more elaborate than others.
EASY PEASY way to use this set it to die-cut two pieces of paper at one time on both the tree and the sentiment. Next, lay the sentiment stamp with image up, ink image and set die-cut on top, pressing firmly all the way around. Then to to either pop dot or glue the sentiment directly onto the tree. You are finished making the tags.,
Even flower paper works for a tree.
Patterned paper is swell too.
Yikes, Stripes? Yes.
This tree has stamping and die cuts all over the tree.
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so I may submit your email to Bugaboo. Congratulations!
DT Favorites are as follows:
Michelle loved the beautiful flowers and dies on this card from escards on instagram- Cindy's favorite is Angie's lovely card, a bike ride under a sunny sky brought back childhood memories even she does not ride a bike! :)
Arlene's favorite is #24 Ingunn's card. The background reminds me of the summer sun and using a silhouette on that background was perfect.
Dawn's favourite was this beauty from ScappyHorses (Katrina) Such a fun summery image
Cathie's favourite is #47 KartenKram, this duck is adorable and I love how she has created the wave effect in the background.
Wonderful cards and so hard to choose a favorite for all of us at Die Cut Divas.
